Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Mom and Pop Nash have ten hens that produce one egg daily. One day, half the eggs are missing. Who could the thief be? They decide to set a trap to ensnare the wrongdoer. After several amusing mishaps, they finally devise a trap that does nab the culprit--a big bad wolf. However, in an unusual turn of events, Mom and Pop Nash and the wolf form a business partnership. It is a story with humor and subtle links between the text and pictures to help young readers. Part of the "Green Light Reader" series, level 2, grades 1-3. 2000, Harcourt, Ages 6 to 8, $10.95. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

Gr 1-2-Mom and Pop Nash discover that a wolf is stealing their hens' eggs. They set traps but at first they succeed only in tangling up themselves. When they finally catch the pesky predator, they realize that he was actually painting the eggs, not eating them. The spare sentences and large type invite beginning readers to follow this funny tale, and the folksy watercolor-and-ink cartoons effectively capture the couple's slapstick attempts to catch their prey.-Diane Janoff, Queens Borough Public Library, CLASP Office, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
